Switch Girl Teen Comedy Manga Gets Live-Action Show
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 24th issue of Shueisha's Margaret magazine is announcing on Saturday that a live-action television series adaptation of Natsumi Aida's Switch Girl!! comedy manga series has been green-lit. The television series will premiere on December 24 on the satellite channel Fuji TV Two, and Seventeen magazine model Mariya Nishiuchi will star in the show.
The story follows a seemingly ultra-cool and stylish girl named Nika Tamiya, but the fashionable persona is all an act that she "switches" on when she is out. At home, she "switches" off and reveals her true slovenly self that almost no one at her high school knows. One day, a transfer student named Arata Kamiyama moves into her apartment complex and discovers both sides of Nika.
Aida launched the manga in Margaret in 2006, and Shueisha published the 17th compiled book volume in September.
